Sheep Trick

Usually, you want to crawl into bed with something tall, dark and handsome. If you make it to the bedroom.

But right about now, short, white and fluffy is looking pretty hot. Literallly.

Allow us to introduce North Country Comforters, which will keep you warm on these cool spring nights and cool once the summer heat arrives. Instead of down, they're filled with wool, and as owners Jill and Patrick Glover describe it, each comforter is a "cloud of pure comfortable warmth to fall asleep under."

We could get used to that. We could also get used to the fact that wool is hypoallergenic and resists dust mites and other nighttime nasties. The Glovers created their first comforter for their daughter, who was allergic to synthetic fill. From there, demand grew, and they now create a whole host of hand-filled, hand-stitched comforters, using wool from Maine sheep, in their barn/studio in Great Pond.

So go ahead, take one to bed with you. We promise you won't be disappointed.
